5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom – Easy for traveling – I Love This Scooter!

Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2019

Verified Purchase

 

If you are in my shape with a mild mobility problem, have trouble getting through airports, or through the zoo with the kids in your life, this machine is a must purchase for you. I take mine on a plane frequently and they let me drive it through airport security to the gate and then down the ramp to the door where the plane crew can then stow it below. When we get to destination, they take it back to the door of the plane so I do not have to rely on airport wheel chairs and helpers. (I need my wife to help me with this part) the machine then breaks down into 5 pieces to fit in the trunk of a rental car and so we can take it with us to our resort or hotel and can use it get around on vacation. I have a walker which I strap to the back with a bungee cord. One more thing to mention, the size of this scooter is smaller then other scooters that do not break down but that helps to get around on traversing ramps or in tight spaces like hotel rooms because of the tight turning radius and shorter length. The scooter is agile yet as a full-grown person I am quite comfortable with the size. This is my 2nd Pride Go-Go Traveler Elite. The first one I bought pre-owned and it made it about 10 years with battery replacements every few years. This scooter is the one you need to just make your life easier if you are having trouble with walking long distances or are on a walker and you want a little more freedom to continue to do the things you enjoy doing. Thanks Pride mobility for making my life with a handicap a much better one.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY FOR THE PRICE!

Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2019

 
I tried a standard walker, but did not like being “hunched over” while walking. Checked Amazon and most of the prices seemed a little too steep for my budget, until I found this. It was very easy to assemble – in fact it was 95% assembled out of the box. It is sturdy and rolls perfectly. I don’t think you could do better at 10 times the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Find

Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2019

 
I love this product! My mother has stability issues and other walkers were not working for her since she had to hunch over to use, which really hurt her back. As soon as we received it we were very impressed. She is now more mobile and it is so easy to break down and is easier to put in the car. We love it and have recommended it to others. The physical therapist even took a picture so he could share with his co workers.
